Thriving Cities

Thriving Cities Group started as a research project at the Institute for Advanced Studies in Culture (IASC) at the University of Virginia in 2012 and then re-established itself as an independent initiative of IASC in 2016 called Thriving Cities.

Led by Dr. Josh Yates, Thriving Cities set out to work and learn in 10 cities from 2012-2017, engaging researchers, city leaders, philanthropists, and nonprofits around these questions about life in modern cities.
